SCIENCE FICTION CARROLL
Mr. Breakfast / Jonathan Carroll
Stuck in neutral, Graham Patterson finds his decision to get tattooed by a brilliant tattoo artist in North Carolina setting off a series of extraordinary events that changes his life forever in ways he never could have imagined, including the opportunity to choose from three different lives.
SCIENCE FICTION CHEN
Vampire Weekend / Mike Chen
In the New York Times best-selling Chen’s follow-up to Light Years from Home, vampires don’t go around bloodsucking people to death (an idea they find abhorrent) but wrangle blood bags and work night jobs. For Louise Chao, it’s a lonely life, relieved by her passion for punk rock. Then a teenage relative she barely knows arrives at her door, and for once she connects—but in the end there’s big-time trouble.
SCIENCE FICTION DAVENPORT
The Blood Trials / N. E. Davenport
Davenport’s debut novel starts with its heroine, Ikenna Amari, getting into a bar fight and doesn’t let up until the last page. Ikenna’s grandfather, the hero of the Republic, died unexpectedly three months prior. Ikenna feels adrift, unsure of what to do with her life, until a trusted advisor intimates that her grandfather’s death was not an accident. To discover the truth, Ikenna joins the Blood Trials, a series of tests designed to make all participants into ruthless soldiers. But not all who start the trials will survive. Ikenna’s world of Iludu is a captivating mix of sf weapons and technology and fantastic gods that bestow magical powers.

Lost in the Moment and Found / Seanan McGuire
Leaving the Shop Where the Lost Things Go behind, Antoinette finds herself lost (literally, this time) and even though many doors open for her, leaving the shop for good might not be as simple as it sounds.
SCIENCE FICTION THOMAS
Threadneedle / Cari Thomas
Anna was born into a family of witches, but was orphaned as a baby and raised by her Aunt Vivenne. Vivienne belongs to a coven known as the Binders, who believe that magic is a sin and must be controlled and bound, lest it draw the attention of the Hunters—who have tracked and killed witches for centuries.
